Omit needless words

26 Aug 2021 | this is how


As always, when it came to speaking and attempting to engage another’s affections, circumstances doomed me to striving and anxiety.


I speak when there’s something to say and expect to be listened to. Some people speak as a performance and don’t understand why others don’t perform the same way. When there’s constant talking, information is not exchanged because talking just becomes constant empty noise.

Raymond Holt:

True friends sit in silence. Small talk is for both: Strangers and con men.
